Founded by Grattan Rippon, RIPPONS SPORTS SOLUTIONS (PTY) LTD was established in 2012. Prior to this, Grattan was the Marketing & Sales Director for New Balance South Africa for 12 years. Thanks to his passion and driving force, New Balance developed a strong association with the cricket fraternity and managed to secure the sponsorship for the Knights, Cobras and Dolphins as well as personal sponsorships for the likes of Dale Steyn and David Miller.
